English Literature and Language
Information about Jack
Hello, I`m Jack. I am a postgraduate of English Literature who has recently graduated from Magdalen College, Oxford. Having studied literature for four years, I have a passion that reaches into the heart of my subject. My aim is to create an inclusive learning environment that allows for individuals to think critically, challenge themselves and improve, without fear of failure. I have an open and adaptable teaching-style and look forward to working with students in order to achieve that "light-bulb moment".
Whilst English Literature & Language is my subject of choice, I also teach and am interested in topics such as art history, football, personal essay writing, and music.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: Prior to graduating, I previously spent six weeks teaching two three week courses - one in persuasive essay writing, the other in men`s and women`s football - for the academic summer school Explo at Yale University. As part of programme, I desgined the curriculum for both courses and catered for small class sizes aged 13-18yrs. As an instructor and residential advisor, I was responsible for students` welfare throughout the day, both within and outside of the classroom environment.
Early this year, I travelled to Rome for six months to tutor for a familys son of 11 years. During this period, I covered topics ranging from natural sciences to gcse maths and English language skills. Bridging language differences with non-native speakers is something I enjoy and have experience in.
